That one straight path leads to Allah Almighty whereas there are many ways not-straight paths (which are wrong and lead astray). Therefore, that traveler and wayfarer who travels for a specific destination, he should have to set each step with caution and with regularity lest he should go astray. On the other hand, a vagabond and aimless traveler who has no objective and set destination, he is free of any restraint. He goes where wind takes him. He is free in every way. Moreover, in order to hit a particular target, one has to employ a hard effort, take much care and caution while shooting but he is free of every regularity and limit who is shooting a gun or arrows without any target. Hence, that religion and nation, whose desired destination and aim of life is the secreted, covered, most invisible and beyond the scopes of wisdom and intellect the Essence like Allah Almighty, its course will be having countless rules and many limits because of its length and being extremely complex and indiscernible. It is a sign of the civilization and culture of a country that many rules and laws have been imposed and abided by there but a savage and uncultured area is free of all kinds of restrictions and laws and here blood shedding and robberies are spread everywhere day and night. Now look at the religions and faiths of all the world. Those much orders and restrains and the laws and principles which are present in Islam, no other religions possesses even a fraction of this. Take any of the religions in the world. None of these have the orders and prohibitions equal to Islam. However, observe the religion Islam that no action, word, move and stop of any sphere of life has been left since one's arrival in the lap of his mother till his arrival in grave which is without the imperatives of countless orders and prohibitions. Moreover, the Maratib of Obligations, Essentials, Sunnat and Recommendatory things have been defined in the Orders and the degrees of the Haraam, Makrooh (detested thing), 'the detested up to the level of banned' and the 'detested up to the level of disapproved' have also been classified and declared amongst the Haraam things. Faith (Eimaan) has been divided into five elements: Beliefs, Worships, Matters, Behavior and conduct (and ethics) and Sociality and each of said chapter has hundreds of sub-chapters and articles.
For example, take the Beliefs (Aqaid). In this the Beliefs of the Zaat Bahjat, concerning Sifaat e Ilaahiya and concerning Risaalat etcetera are separate and of every Saqeela and Hafeefa, there are two degrees. The detail of the Four-Elements in the Worships is so lengthy that the life of a person ends but the list is not fully memorized. Conditions are separate, Elements are distinct, Essentials are unique, Recommendatory things are distinctive, Makroohaat (detested things) are separate and Mufsadaat are other. From head to toe, no matter whatever is the organ, a special Worship is for it and many kinds of restrictions in shape of Dos and Don'ts are applicable on it in every step and in each instant. The list of Muamlaat is even longer than this that from the king to a beggar, each person of every segment and vocation and whatever occupation he has chosen, for example, trade, agriculture, production and industry, in short, there is no profession on which the Shariyat of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has not applied countless Dos and Don'ts and a lot of limitations so that no human being should come under any kind of undue pressure because of any profession and business and he should remain safe against every kind of injustice and oppression and looting and prowling. Then there is no aspect of imaginations, impressions, habits and traits in the Behavior and conduct (and ethics) which has been overlooked. In the same way, in Sociality, the best treatment and dealing between all the creations like humans, cattle, plants, inanimate objects, in short, all kinds of the creations have been defined and controlled through a system of Dos and Don'ts. And the most astonishing accomplishment is that it not just the Maujoodaat and events but also the imaginative power of the human being, which devises even the most impossible things in mind, is not free of implication of some Fatwa for its permissibility and impermissibility from the Shariyat of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. In short, this ambit of the principles and laws of the Shariyat of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam is as vast as it should be according to Glory of the Sacred Essence of Allah Almighty which is the Destination of this Pure Religion, its aim and prime objective. These rules and laws are still in practice even in this era of poor practice. Thus, you will see this dead nation busy and engaged in the Worship of its Creator and Lord day and night in every place and in every time.
